  • GitHub repo PublicActivity

    Easy activity tracking for models - similar to Github's Public Activity

    Project mention: How to Create A Flexible, Performant Audit Trail In Ruby on Rails With A GraphQL API | | 2021-04-08

    You often want to track what user's are doing throughout your app. There are some gems that help you do this. For example, activerecord_activity_tracker or public_activity. However, gems like these sometimes utilize polymorphic relationships, which don't scale well, or they're very opinionated about the setup. When your requirements differ from the default setup, it can become cumbersome to implement.

  • GitHub repo Paranoia

    acts_as_paranoid for Rails 3, 4 and 5

    Project mention: RoR Gems: Pin To Plane For Developing RoR Application | | 2021-02-28

    Project mention: Awesome Ruby and Rails Open Source applications | | 2021-02-07

    I saw your sort request in the TODO. Check out the acts_as_list gem. It makes sorting lists incredibly easy.

  • GitHub repo Closure Tree

    Easily and efficiently make your ActiveRecord models support hierarchies

    Project mention: Hierarchical Structures in PostgreSQL | | 2021-06-25

    I'm actually using materialized views and CTE with PhotoStructure (where hierarchies are arguably the cornerstone of the product).

    It's pretty funny that I landed on this implementation, given that I spent a couple years building (one of the most popular acts-as-hierarchy ActiveRecord gems), as it (unsurprisingly) uses closure trees.

    When CTE isn't available, closure trees are nice, but boy howdy, does that closure tree table get gigantic with deeper graphs.

    If CTE is available, closure trees don't even come close in performance and simplicity.

    (Hint: materialized paths should use a unique separator: ASCII 0x1F is applicable:

  • GitHub repo Enumerize

    Enumerated attributes with I18n and ActiveRecord/Mongoid support

  • GitHub repo marginalia

  • GitHub repo dry-validation

    Validation library with type-safe schemas and rules

    Project mention: Leveraging complexity of service objects with dry libraries | | 2021-09-02

    ➡️ First, we need to upgrade the validation process. For this will be used the gem dry-validation. It adds validations that are expressed through contract objects.

  • GitHub repo Goldiloader

    Just the right amount of Rails eager loading

    Project mention: Prosopite is trending on GitHub! Thank you! | | 2021-02-20

    Prosopite looks cool, it's is similar to, though goldiloader will also rewrite the query to address the N+1 issue. You should be able to use both and verify goldiloader is working by checking that prosopite logs no N+1 queries.

  • GitHub repo Acts As Tennant

    Easy multi-tenancy for Rails in a shared database setup.

    Project mention: multi-tenant-support gem: Help you build a highly secure, multi-tenant rails app without data leak | | 2021-10-04
